13 fillies will do battle at Churchill Downs this Friday, May 2nd at 5:49pm Eastern (TV: NBCSN) for the 140th running of the Kentucky Oaks.  Untapable, the easy winner of two back-to-back graded stakes races at Fair Grounds, drew the outside post and is installed as the heavy 4-5 favorite.

However, some good-looking fillies will try to pull the upset:

Sugar Shock won the Fantasy S. (G3) and the Honeybee (G3) at Oaklawn.

Rosalind won the Ashland S. (G1) on the Polytrack at Keeneland.

My Miss Sophia won the Gazelle (G2) at Aqueduct by 7 1/4 lengths.

Fashion Plate won the Santa Anita Oaks (G1) and the Last Virgenes (G1) at Santa Anita.

Ria Antonia won the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies last fall and ran second in the Santa Anita Oaks (G1) her last race out.
